All I Want For Holiday

The slogan "Keep Christ in Christmas" has been around for a while, but at this point we've got to get more fundamental; keeping Christ in Christmas is all well and good, but we've won the battle and lost the war if we're piously celebrating the birth of Christ behind closed doors while the world celebrates the Twelve Days of Holiday (HT First Things). Then again, it might well be better for Christmas (and Christianity) if it's distinct from Holiday.

Back to the topic at hand: apparently even Focus on the Family has the 12 Days of Christmas mixed up and sent out a recent email indicating the 12 Days are the 12 days leading up to Christmas.

When even Christians can't get it right, what hope do we have?
